I had the honor of meeting Israeli Lt. General Benjamin Gantz last night at the Baltimore Zionist District’s Brandeis Gala at Beth Tfiloh. BZD honored General Gantz with its Justice Louis D. Brandeis award and also honored Laurie and Kevin Luskin. Pictured in the photo with me is General Gantz and Cong. Chris Van Hollen, who also attended the event.
It was great to honor the winners of the Financial Education and Capability Awards in the House of Delegates. The awards are sponsored by Maryland CASH Campaign, Maryland Council on Economic Education, and Maryland State Department of Education.
Congratulations to the winners, who are outstanding teachers and community leaders who teach financial education.

Thank you to the voters of the 11th District for making me one of the three Democratic nominees for House of Delegates! And thank you to everyone who helped the District 11 Team (including my wonderful family, pictured here at Pikesville High School) win in the primary election.
I was honored to receive a Legislative Leadership award today at the Maryland Clean Energy Summit, hosted by the Maryland Clean Energy Center. The following is from MCEC’s website:
“Baltimore County Delegate Dana Stein has been a consistent and dedicated advocate for policy to address climate change, drive adoption of renewable energy and encourage energy efficiency measures. A few years ago, Stein was the point person leading the charge within the legislature to create the Maryland Clean Energy Center. He has actively supported MCEC ever since. As a member of the Environmental Matters Committee, he has championed legislation to encourage development of community energy projects, improve the Renewable Portfolio Standard with a specific carve-out for solar power, and provide a renewable energy credit for woody-biomass-to-energy solutions. He has supported policy to advance consumer use of electric vehicles and efforts to pass the Maryland Offshore Wind Act of 2013. Outside of his work in Annapolis, Stein serves as executive director of Civic Works, a nonprofit that supports residential energy efficiency improvements, trains individuals for green economy careers, and maintains an urban farm.”
